I enjoyed being able to attend classes on my own pace and schedule rather than being forced into a set schedule from the start. Having a set schedule is also an option at Ross for those who prefer it. Ross tries to make it as convenient as possible for anyone trying to pursue their MBA, including having satellite classrooms located closer to where most students work.
